    George Capaccio

    Committed, multitalented writer

    United States - Portfolio: 15

    I began my professional career with the dream of becoming a widely published poet. I soon discovered that making a living as a working poet is a non-starter. While I continue to write and publish poetry, I have matured into a savvy, professional writer with two decades of experience in the field of educational publishing. My experience includes researching and writing curriculum-aligned articles, essays, and books in science, health, social studies, and language arts. My clients have been some of the industry's leaders, like Houghton MIfflin Harcourt, National Geographic, Holt McDougal, and Macmillan/McGraw-Hill. Clients have also commissioned me to write original fiction for grades 2-8 reading and language arts programs. Whether fiction or nonfiction, my published writings draw from my earlier career as a professional storyteller and artist educator with years of experience designing and implementing curriculum-enrichment programs in Boston's pubic schools.
